Crazy busy

Yes, so I've been crazy busy lately - trying to scramble together all the necessary adoption stuff for the applications. Aside from that - everything is quite good right now. I've lost 14 pounds and I still exercise 5 days a week, which is great! Anna is loving this warm weather - she asks to go to the park everyday after school and who can blame her? 60-70 degrees = heaven outside! Tyler is currently filling up the backyard area with dirt - our yard slopes along the back of it. We're contemplating the idea of putting up a fence so that Maggie can run amok out there and when our twins arrive, I won't be as nervous when they're outside, not to mention just having Anna out there now...so, we're on the lookout for some discounted prices on chainlink fences. I think we need about 100 feet of it...or thereabouts. Anyone know of a fence who wants to be in our backyard?

Maggie is doing really well - her personality is so fun and vivacious. She's been doing better with the whole potty training. Translation: we've been taking her out more often so she has been doing her business outside versus inside. (so I guess, we're becoming trained here)

Anna is ready for the summer! She and her daddy have a wonderful morning routine: He feeds her breakfast and if she finishes in time (which she always does) they get to play one game of wii. Anna thrives on it and it's just one more reason why Tyler is such a great dad. (plus he lets me sleep, so he's a great husband, too!)

Tyler is sleep deprived! He gets up and goes to work, drives an hour commute to school which goes from 3:30pm until 10pm and then gets home around 11:30pm, then we talk about what needs to be done on the adoption front, get to bed around 1-2am, then he gets up at 7am to help Anna...plus he's now working in the backyard doing physical labor when he has some free-time. He's exhaused! But he's so wonderful and he takes great care of his family. :o)

Sounds busy!! When life is like that for me I find it full, wonderful and tiring! I guess that is what it is like to be a mom and wife, huh! Don't you just love great husbands that help out, though?!
